Public Hearing for County Board Redistricting Sept. 28


Public hearing for county board redistricting Sept. 28 Community feedback sought during board of supervisors meeting

A public hearing for the county board of supervisors’ redistricting efforts is set for Tuesday, Sept. 28. Community members are invited to attend and provide feedback on the process.

The 2020 U. S. Census data released last month revealed that Riverside County has grown by more than 10 percent – more than double the growth of neighboring counties in Southern California. Following this data, the County of Riverside is charged with redistricting the county’s supervisorial district boundaries.

Redistricting ensures fair and equal representation accounting for changes in population and communities of interest that share common social and economic factors. Public participation in the redistricting process is a critically important part of the process.

“The voice of our residents is crucial during this process as the work of the county impacts and enhances their daily lives,” said Board Chair Karen Spiegel, second district supervisor. “Residents are encouraged to share their feedback in-person or online.”

Residents are invited to attend the regularly scheduled board of supervisors meeting on Tuesday (Sept. 28) at 9:30 a.m. to provide input in-person on the redistricting efforts, as well as suggested boundary lines. The public hearing will be held during the regularly scheduled board meeting. The time of the public hearing is subject change based on the board meeting agenda.

Community members may draw suggested boundary lines and submit online using the online feedback tool. Find more information online at, under Redistricting.

The public hearing will also be available live or on-demand at

Additional opportunities for public input will be held in Oct. and Nov., including another public hearing slated for Oct. 19. | Contributed
